Congrats Clare! Please email me your address and I'll get your headband in the mail for you.
Thanks so much for your support ladies! You're all lovely!

To jump or not to jump.....

that is the question!
 I'm thinking about buying a jolly jumper for my almost 4 month old little cherub. These past few days I have been carrying my little girl on my hip all day long...and when she does sleep I quickly dash to do a bit of housework. Here is my current dilemma: 'baby on hip' + housework = no craft time. And man, that is just wrong!! Now I'm thinking more along the lines of, 'baby in jolly jumper attached to my sewing room door' = craft time. It sounds like a match made in heaven.  I'm just wondering though, will it cure her miseration? I play with her, sing songs to her, she lies and plays on her play mat under the mobile, and she has tummy time...but really, none of these last very long. She's happiest in her mommy's arms. 
So what are your thoughts on a jolly jumper? Do you think they're a good idea? Have you ever had one, and did your baby love it? Or do you think my little girl just needs a lot of cuddles at the moment and everything else should take a back seat for now? 


PS: I've just googled images of babies in their jolly jumpers, and those babies all look really happy - hee hee!

Hello there

Hello everybody. Just peeking in to say hi. Thanks so much for sticking around. When I post this, I am actually expecting to receive an automated message from Blogger saying "Sorry, you have lost ALL your followers due to not blogging  for over a year".  I can't believe it been more than a year since my last blog. So much has happened.... We built and moved into a new house (with my own sewing/craft room, might I add).We were blessed with another sweet little girl, Kirsten on the 7th of December. And my big little girl started Prep this year.
I had stopped blogging and selling because I wasn't entirely sure of which direction I wanted to go with regards to sewing and crafting. I am feeling so happy now about what I'm doing at the moment. I've been fiddling around with felt and  I've also been making felt and fabric hairclips and headbands, which I am really enjoying!

To say thanks, for still being here and for those who have recently joined, I am having a little giveaway. Please leave a comment to get a chance to win this gorgeous denim headband with polka dot fabric flower, shown above - lovingly handmade by yours truly!

Until next time....
